You want System Reserved and C on the SSD, as Disc 0.
And you should have the HDD as Disc 1, with no System Reserved on Disc 1.
I'd start over. Disconnect the HDD.
As it is now, you apparently have the SSD connected to the wrong port, that's why it is Disc 1, not Disc 0. It isn't absolutely critical, but if you are early in the installation, you may as well get it right.
After you get Windows installed on the SSD as Disc 0, the SSD should have 2 partitions: System Reserved and C.
When that's all correct and done, reconnect the HDD. It should show as Disc 1. You can then delete all partitions on it and make one big D partition. You don't want a System Reserved partition on that HDD data drive.
